Ethir Neechal is directed by Senthil, a former associate of Vettrimaran, and features Sivakarthikeyan, Priya Anand and Nandita in the lead. The film will see Anirudh attempting to follow his successful debut in ‘3’.
The album’s opener is a down-tempo electronica track with a beautiful flute intro. Dhanush as the lyricist takes care to indulge in some self-censorship with the English words. Both him and Anirudh lend their voices that goes through its share of filters. The song has several layers packaged into it and does give the impression of being slightly over-produced.
The song begins with a soft organ & guitar driven melody but just as you’re bracing yourself for it to explode into a some sort of bouncy bubble gum pop track, you’re pleasantly surprised with the restrained treatment of the song. Anirudh’s singing seems pretty laid back which goes with the mood of the song. Dhanush as the lyricist keeps things simple as usual. The song has its share of hooks and melodies to find a place in the charts.
The song’s presentation is unique as Vaali’s hope inspiring lyrics are set to party music. The song is filled with several gimmicks that play to the youth. The beats are designed to get you bouncing in your seat and Anirudh lends his own voice over it. YOYO Honey and Hip Hop Tamizha Adhi exchange introductions to their respective rap portions, the former’s in Hindi and the latter’s in Tamil, and despite being a fairly short opportunity, they both shine.
This track is yet another soft romantic tune that brims with overpowering orchestration. Flute and strings being the main players throughout the song. The progression of the chorus melody makes it the high point of the song. Both Mohit Chauhan and Shreya Ghoshal deliver professional performances. Mohit’s pronunciation of Tamil words has the same charm that Udit Narayan once brought to the industry with his voice.
Clocking it at just over a minute and half there is very little to take away from the tune except for reminding ourselves of Anirudh’s preferred instruments like the folk percussions, strings and flute.
Loud and fast, just how people like their kuthu songs! The track’s personality has a sort of a heavy metal relentlessness to it. The change over provides some relief before getting into the break neck speed once again. Dhanush & Velmurugan steam through their fiery performance.
